Resumo: PURPOSE: Dissection provides direct experience in anatomy, which constitutes an essential discipline for medical students. For this purpose, we created a dissection guide for students in the 2nd-year of medical studies at the Grenoble University School of Medicine. The objective was to evaluate this tool of reverse pedagogy in terms of student satisfaction and educational interest. METHODS: Every 2nd-year student takes four sessions of limb dissection. To assist this dissection course, we developed a photographic guide launched in 2013. It includes an introduction presenting a methodology for dissection, followed by detailed protocols for each dissection area. Each step is illustrated with captioned photographs associated with a concise explanatory text. A questionnaire was then sent to 242 students to assess the impact of this tool and their overall satisfaction. RESULTS: Overall student satisfaction with this guidebook was rated 8.1 out of 10 with a 93.2% with significant improvement (p = 0.0137) and 78.7% of them declaring they had a better understanding of anatomy and mastery of the dissection techniques, respectively. In addition, students assessed the usefulness of the dissection guide at 3.6 out of 4 with the relevance of the content and presentation judged at 3.4 out of 4. Finally, the exam scores increased significantly with use of the guidebook (p < 0.0001). CONCLUSIONS: Students deemed the organization of this anatomy tutorial as highly satisfactory, and using the guidebook as a reference in dissection sessions allowed students to prepare for the dissection and improve their knowledge of anatomy, as demonstrated by improved exam scores.
